During the Democratic administration of President Jimmy Carter, Hills returned to private practice as partner in the Washington firm of Latham, Watkins, and Hills. She served on the boards of directors of a number of prominent corporations, including Chevron, IBM, and American Airlines. She sat on several national commissions, including the Trilateral Commission and the Sloan Commission on Government and Higher Education. She also held advisory positions at a number of top educational institutions, including the University of Southern California, Stanford's and Yale's law schools, and Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
An advocate of free trade, she was the primary U.S. negotiator of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). On May 28, 1991, Rep. Esteban Torres (D-CA) complained to Hills in a letter that more Hispanics needed to be included in the NAFTA negotiations process. In 2000, Mrs. Hills was awarded the The Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle (La Orden Mexicana del Aguila Azteca) which is the highest honor conveyed to non-citizens by the Mexican government. In fact, the first time Mexican-Americans were honored with this award was November 12, 1990, one of whom was the union leader, Cesar Chavez
In 2005, Carla Hills participated in [Independent Task Force on North America |The Task Force on the Future of North America] which produced a controversial report called, Building a North American Community sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations. The general sense was to strengthen trading relationships between the U.S., Canada and Mexico by making trade more efficient, planning for North American infrastructure, fast tracking borders and even some language integration. For example, it was recommended to “assist elementary and secondary schools in teaching about North America.” (page 29) “Develop teacher exchange and training programs for elementary and secondary school teachers. This would assist in removing language barriers and give some students a greater sense of a North American identity. Greater efforts should also be made to recruit Mexican language teachers to teach Spanish in the United States and Canada.”

I think we should go through the board of directors of Gilead, look at them individually, and the other companies and think-tanks that they are involved in. Anybody want to join me in this endeavor?
